BB Revisted

The last time I tried BB Creams, I never did manage to find one light enough shade wise and light enough feeling wise.  They always left an obvious mask I could feel on my face.  Recently there has been a lot of talk about one formula from Holika Holika that was ‘great’ for people with […]

Inglot AMC Cream Foundation – A Review

Clean Finish
